Seajacks orders wind turbine installer at Lamprell

June 22 - Seajacks International has entered into a contract with Lamprell Energy PLC to construct the Seajacks Zaratan ("Zaratan").

The self propelled jack-up is designed specifically to service the wind farm installation market in the harsh North Sea operating environment, as well as to provide services to the oil and gas sectors.

Lamprell says the jack-up will be built at its Hamriyah, Sharjah, facility and that the Engineering, Procurement & Construction contract is valued at USD129 million.

The vessel is a modified version of the Gusto MSC NG5500 design. With a payload capacity of 2,850 tonnes, it will be capable of installing wind turbines and foundations in water depths up to 55 m. The contract also includes an option to build one additional vessel at Lamprell for the same price.

Delivery of Zaratan is scheduled for the second quarter of 2012.

Seajacks currently owns and operates two self-propelled jack-up vessels out of Great Yarmouth, the Seajacks Kraken and Seajacks Leviathan. Both vessels are purpose built for installing offshore wind turbines, as well as being able to perform a number of niche operations for the North Sea oil and gas industry.
